Another winner from Pink Diamond.Plum can be replaced with other fruit and the cook as well. My four-year-old made most of this cake herself.

1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
Plums to fill up the bottom of the baking pan.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Melt butter in 8 inch square baking pan and sprinkle with brown sugar. Cover with pitted plums.Set aside.
Cream shortening and sugar thoroughly, add egg and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy.
Blend together the flour, baking powder and salt and add to creamed mixture alternately with milk.
Beat well after each addition. Pour batter over fruit variation of choice.
Bake for 40 to 50 minutes.
Invert at once on a serving plate being careful not to burn yourself.
Best served warm.
